Halo Engagement Rings

Posted by Sarah PeaseAug 08, 2012

This year, halo rings have emerged as a popular choice in engagements rings, especially among celebrities. At the start of the year, Justin Timberlake popped the question to long-time girlfriend Jessica Biel with a custom-made halo ring. More recently, Emily Maynard received a cushion-shaped halo ring from Jef Holm on the season finale of “The Bachelorette”. Although halo rings are a classic style, it is their revamped shapes and colors that have lead to a surge in their popularity.

For example, after Kate Middleton’s diamond and sapphire halo engagement ring was made public last year, we saw halo rings in various colors pop up everywhere in 2012. Bold halo engagement rings, such as the double halo shown below, are definitely a a hot trend!

Best TV Marriage Proposals

Posted by Sarah PeaseFeb 01, 2012

Tis the season for marriage proposals with Valentine’s Day around the corner!  In honor of all of the lucky couples out there, I’ve compiled a list of the top TV marriage proposals. As you can see, many of them stray from my typical proposal do’s and don’ts, but through the magic of TV, all of them are still wonderful and still perfect, because she says yes!

1. Jim & Pam from The Office.  My personal favorite – nothing was perfect and yet it was still perfect.

2. Charlotte & Harry from Sex and the City.  No ring, no plan but all kinds of love!

3. Monica & Chandler from Friends. Proof that the proposal doesn’t have to start with the man! Click here for the clip.

What He Did Right: American Idol’s Lee DeWyze

Posted by Sarah PeaseJul 29, 2011

I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating: personal proposals are the key to greatness! A engagement story can be elaborate and over the top, or small and intimate, but making it personal is key! Lee DeWyze, the sweet crooner from the 2010 season of American Idol, recently popped the question to Jonna Walsh. Here’s what he did right:

  1. Make it personal. Lee knew Jonna loves all things Disney-related, so asking her to spend the rest of their lives together in Disney World was the perfect decision. It’s shows that he knows who she is and is somewhere they’ll be able to visit forever and remember their engagement.
  2. Keep it exciting. There are certain things in life that nearly everyone would denote as exciting and fireworks are definitely one of those things. Proposing is a big deal; it is something to be celebrated and to be excited about so interpret this in in a way that makes your proposal exciting.
  3. Short is just as sweet. Even though Lee admits going off script when the time came around, he is also quick to say that he planned out what he was going to say. Even the most practiced speakers will get nervous and forget their ‘lines’ so keep it short and sweet.

Kim Kardashian’s Proposal: What He Did Right

Posted by Sarah PeaseMay 25, 2011

We’ve got breaking news in the proposal world today: Kim Kardashian is engaged!  Her new fiance, Kris Humphries, popped the question on one knee surrounded by red rose petals spelling out “Will You Marry Me?”  The ring was a custom-designed 20.5 carat Lorraine Schwartz stunner. Here’s my expert take on their proposal story, and what he did right:

  • Have a ring. 20.5 carats?  Kris knocked this one out of the park. I hope Kim feels the same way.
  • Make it a Surprise. Kris waited in Kim’s room to ensure she would be completely taken by surprise. No lame proposal dinners here!
  • Consider the Aftermath. Since the future bride is so close with her family, Kris planned an intimate party to celebrate immediately after the engagement. Not only were they able to share the details of the proposal, but could also show off her new bling!
